Hello students and staff, my name is Jarren Kennedy and I am very excited to join the HOPE family. A little about me I am from St Paul, MN but I have been living in Milwaukee the past five years. I attended Wisconsin Lutheran College and received my business marketing degree in 2020. In my previous role I was a manager with Stanley Steemer. I understand what it takes to keep an organization operating at peak performance and that is what I plan on doing for HOPE as the High School’s SOM. I am a huge sports fan and that is what you can find me watching when I am not at school or the gym. Looking forward to getting to know you all throughout this school year!

Joshua plans to one day be a principal and a president of an HBCU college while coaching basketball.
Education has always meant so much to me. Since a child I've loved school and learning. After high school, my college career began at the University of WI-Oshkosh. After 2 and 1/2 years there, I transferred back to my hometown of Milwaukee, and graduated from UWM with a B.S in Education. Since then, I've enjoyed teaching and serving children in my community. As we prepare for another year at the high school, I am excited to see all returning students and new faces. My goals as a College and Career Counselor are to help shape our scholars for bright futures and teach them life skills they'll use forever.
